Hope you all had a great holiday season and happy new year. If you are like me, you are settling into winter by staying warm by drinking lots of tea and crocheting constantly.
Need some new free projects?
Knit and Crochet Now! Has published Season 6's projects for you to enjoy. On this season I have a bunch of new patterns that you might like.
African Flower Hat
Uses less then one hank of each of the 3 colors of Berroco Vintage Dk. The hat is made from crocheted motifs that join as you go, or can be sewn together. Layout is flat and hat is formed by pinching and bunching top edge to make the crown. Easily could be a cowl without seaming the top. Who doesn't like 2 projects in one? You could get the 3 colors and make one colorway for the hat and use the reverse for a cowl!
This was first published on Berroco's Knit Bits. The top is worked from the collar down. The first repeat is the hardest while you are learning the stitch pattern you are also increasing, but once you are through that it is clear sailing. There is a lot of fun stitches with the post stitches and Berroco's Fuji yarn is a great blend to make the top feel amazing.
Raglan Lace Tee
Need a new spring/ summer top? One that you can actually wear without a cami? This sweater is light and airy and perfect when you want to look put together. It uses one of my favorite threads, Nazli Gelin Garden 5. Once you try it I promise your other cotton thread will be jealous. The top is actually quite simple and is perfect when you want a brain break, and just crochet. Body is all treble and single crochet, lace sleeves are an easy chain space mixed with v-sts. You will have to try it to believe me.
Have a some half balls of yarn laying around? This quick hand warmer will use that up. The project is one doily in superwash merino yarn that is buttoned to turn into a wristlet. Place your thumb in any of the open spaces and you are finished. Where it with the buttons in or out, the choice is yours.
Want the yarn to Build Your Own Kit for on of these projects? Check out Annie's yarn shop. They have overhauled their system to make it easier to browse and find what you like. Plus for a limited time (til Jan 23) you can get 20% off on yarn by using the code: NEW YARN. What does that really mean? That means you can crochet the t-shirt for a little over 20$ in time for spring! You definitely would not be able to do that even if it was on sale in a store. Definitely take a look and stock up on some of your favorites before the sale is over!
